Over 20 million people have seen the video of Prof Kelly interrupted by his children as he was talking about events in North Korea. The video could be a great way of talking about stereotypes in class. Here's what I'm thinking of doing:
So Try This Instead:
My guess: someone will mention (now that they are anonymous) that they thought the woman was his nanny.
This is a great opening for a discussion on stereotypes (mention that many people around the world saw her as a nanny) and the idea of deindividuation (when students are anonymous they're more likely to express potentially embarrassing points of view).
If you try this I'd love to hear how it goes in your class!
And just for a little humor as well as a tie-in to social roles: what if Kelly was a woman?
